Republican candidate for mayor Chris Thieneman has released his first TV ad. You can watch it here.

Thieneman has positioned himself as the most anti-Abramson candidate in the race, but as LEO points out, it may not work; the current GOP frontrunner is Metro Councilman Hal Heiner, who is visually compared to Abramson in the clip, but has been a frequent opponent of the mayor on the council.
